Doctor Horrible - Need to be more carefu

Health news

Saw my primary care doctor last Friday (9/23) and all looks pretty good. She drew a full panel of bloodwork, and the key for me is this: my A1c, which was 14 when I was admitted to the hospital on May 18, is down to 6 -- which is basically normal. I'm stoked about this.

Still having some issues with the fourth toe on the right foot (which got rubbed raw by my shoe as a result of the lack of small toe. I have a line on a place in the neighborhood that has diabetic shoes (and a script for them), and will see about acquiring a pair so that when the doctor tells me I should wear them, I can. With luck, they will preclude more incidents like this one.

Next step: losing weight
